Dead Server

[ #15638 ]

My colo box fell over at 1:29am today. Or rather, it seems to have stopped talking to the outside world. I can use the remote reboot facility to restart it, but it still won't network. I can reboot it into "rescue mode" which allows me to log on and poke around to find out what the problem is, but I can't find any obvious problems.

If it's a crack, then it's not a very successful one as I assume that the cracker won't be able to see the server either, so I'm sure it's just a simple problem that needs to fixed.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. The box is running RedHat 7.2.

  • This might be too obvious (meaning you probably checked already), but... are there any cron jobs running on the half hour?

    If so, I'd start looking at the resources they use and how they affect the system.
